Collector's Edition releases of games are on the rise in the 7th generation of consoles. While they were far and few between previously, it seems every major title has a Collector's Edition nowadays. The Collector's Editions are often marketed towards the die hard fan, containing art books, soundtracks, figurines and dozens of other goodies that make franchise fanboys squeal in delight. However, the fans aren't the real reason that developers are suddenly releasing more Collector's Editions. Recent research indicates that developers also bank an extraordinary amount on Collector's Editions of games.
